Live Prospectus - by the people who know us best, our students

⚖️Week 3 of the LPC⚖️ Today, I am back on campus for my third week of workshops. For those of you who have previously studied u_law, things may look a little different! This is the workshop set up (socially distanced learning) with group work carried out virtually. It’s a strange concept to get your head around. The fact that your classmates are around you but you’re unable to engage with them given the safety restrictions in place. Nevertheless, I am finding my workshops extremely helpful and it is nice to be back to face-to-face teaching. Today I have my second works for Dispute Resolution and Business, Law and Practice. The prep work has certainly increased as we get into the throw of things and my first practice assessment is due on Friday. It’s definitely taken the last couple of weeks to settle in and adjust to the changes. I am doing my best to stay positive and stay organised so I can make the most out of my final year of study. How are you all feeling about being back at university (be it virtually or face-to-face)? ☁️ #law #study #student #aspiringlawyer #legal #blog #studygram #covid19 #ulaw

Very thankful for this long weekend after a hectic class resumption for schools across Hong Kong! I even managed to get out and tick some things of my HK bucket list too!⠀ ⠀ The picture above was taken on Friday when my fiancée and I rented a sampan (boat) for the day with another couple that we are friends with. The boat took us to one of the more secluded (and less crowded) beaches in Sai Kung to escape the hustle and bustle of 7 million people with a similar objective. The whole time we all kept mentioning just how much it felt like we were in the Philippines! Especially after having to swim to the shore with all of our supplies and waterproof bags! ⠀ ⠀ Other exciting things are happening, such as the launch of thecommercialclub Keep your eyes peeled for the sign up for the first session that will go live later today! These session will be a great way to enhance your commercial awareness by means of collaborative analysis of current business stories. Give it a try! ⠀ ⠀ Happy rest of the weekend!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀#ulaw #lawstudent #llb #aspiringsolicitors #futurelawyers #llbdegree #law #trainingcontract #commercialawareness #internship #workexperience #lawyerlife #lawschool #lawyers #lawfirm #travel #Traveler #igstudy #lawstudygram #studygram #instastudy #studyabroad #productivity #lawstudentsofinstagram

𝙵𝙸𝚁𝚂𝚃 𝙳𝙰𝚈 𝙱𝙰𝙲𝙺 𝙾𝙽 𝙲𝙰𝙼𝙿𝚄𝚂 👩 💼 So this morning I went back to uni for the first time since March! I’ve opted to do face-to face workshops this semester (all lectures are online and workshops you can choose to take online or in person) I had 2 workshops, business from 9-11 then criminal from 11:15-1:15👩 💻 The day started off a bit rough, the tube I got on was quite badly delayed (looking at you, Victoria line) so I managed to walk into my first workshop late…but these things happen & I only missed the very beginning of it ⏰ Some of the stuff ulaw has done to make it as safe as possible to go back: ✰ Spaced out seating (everyone facing forward in exam-style seating - all group work done online using collaborate) ✰ Masks on 24/7 (apart from people who are exempt) ✰ No plugging your laptop charger in classrooms (okay call me naive but can someone explain that one to me?🧐) ✰ My back to back workshops are in the same room to reduce the amount we move around uni ✰ Hand sanitiser as you walk into buildings ✰ Seating taken away from the cafe It’s obviously not perfect; being a uni in the centre of London means ulaw doesn’t have the luxury of a lot of room, so social distancing in corridors / stairs is pretty much non-existent 🤷🏼 ♀️ Overall though, (from the viewpoint of someone who’s lucky in that I’m not in any way high-risk), I felt safe on campus! I’m just happy to be taught by someone in person again, rather than through a screen. I’m only in Monday’s and Thursdays too, so it feels like a nice balance of being back without being too overwhelmed😊

First day at ulaw Bristol! Really enjoyed meeting fellow students and super impressed with their COVID regulations!! Guess I’m now officially a law student!! #gdl #gdlstudent #lawstudent #legal #lawandbroader #ulaw #ulawbristol

Well what a great first day it’s been back at u_law Bristol campus - for our induction to year 2 week! Could of asked for saver measures to be put in place and the team were so welcoming back. It’s been great to see some familiar faces after these long few months. Super excited for our employability session this evening and the lectures to come this week (even if they are virtual). Excuse the photo at the end (credits to my mum 😂). How have you found your first weeks of uni in this new ‘normal’? #ulaw #llb #lpc #gdl #studies #unilife #covid_19 #backoncampus #liveprospectus

BPC is underway u_law 🙌 I'm officially in the building 😊.

Week 1 of the LPC✅ This time last week I was getting prepared for my first LPC workshop at u_law Guildford. It’s really crazy to think how quickly time has flown by and that I am already moving on to my second week. I throughly enjoyed my first week getting a feel for all that the workshops entail and adjusting myself to the academic rigours of the course. It was great to meet my new classmates and lecturers as we went back to face-to-face teaching to embark on the next chapter of our legal journeys. I must admit, it does feel slightly odd being back after many months of lockdown but nevertheless, I am going embrace my final year of study which is certainly made easier by having this view from my classroom window! I am looking forward to starting my second week of workshops, which I can happily say I am all prepared for! So how does the LPC differ from studying the LLB? This difference is apparent from the outset. Starting the LPC is a huge step towards your legal career and already at this early stage, I have a better understanding of what I will be doing when I am in practice. Although the LPC is less academic than the LLB, the workload is certainly quite hefty. There is a lot to learn in a short space of time and bridging the gap between academic study and real practice is no easy task. I am enjoying the practical nature of the course because I think that it will have more of a longstanding benefit in the future. You are given numerous tasks for each workshop which are designed to prepare you for the tasks you will be asked to carry out in class. Although these tasks vary from week to week, they tend to include reading, online test, listening to lectures / tutorials and working on the preparatory tasks which are vital when it comes to deriving the most benefit from each workshop. The workload and style of it gives you an idea of the things you will be doing as a Trainee. It is essential to use your time wisely and plan ahead to stay organised. Treat the course as if you are a Trainee and give it your best shot👏🏻 Of course, it wouldn’t be the LPC if you didn’t get an assessment within the first week😅 #liveprospectus #ulaw #law #lpc #blog

🇭🇰 Since June of 2019, Hong Kong has had a serious amount of bad press. Whether it's the ongoing protests or the current corona virus scare, everyone seems to have an opinion on Asia's Global City. ⁣ ⁣ Whilst these things are very real issues, as a Hong Kong resident I think it's important for me to share that life here is just as rich and full of adventure as it always has been! ⁣ ⁣ I feel very blessed that I am able to not only live and work here, but also able to study remotely from Hong Kong. ⁣ ⁣ Don't trust all that you read in the news. ⁣ ⁣ #ulaw #lawstudent #llb #aspiringsolicitors #futurelawyers #llbdegree #law #trainingcontract #vacationscheme #internship #workexperience #lawyerlife #lawschool #lawyers #lawfirm #travel #Traveler #igstudy #lawstudygram #studygram #instastudy #studyabroad #productivity #lawstudentsofinstagram
